DAZN Group opens new media centre in Leeds

Digital sports media company DAZN Group has announced that it will open a new office in the English city of Leeds later this month.

DAZN Group will begin occupying a brand-new office at Leeds’ White Rose Office Park from January 28.

DAZN Group’s editorial, product and design teams based in Leeds will be among the first to move into the 40,000-sq-ft space, which will house up to 350 staff.

DAZN Group said the relocation will give it the capacity to further expand in a purpose-built environment after “outgrowing” its city-centre location.

The media centre will house employees from across DAZN Group’s consumer brands, including sports website Goal and the DAZN streaming service, which is available in seven countries and is set to launch in Spain and Brazil this year.

DAZN Group’s chief operations officer, Neil Colligan, said: “The new office in Leeds is an important milestone in DAZN Group’s journey to become the world’s biggest digital sport media business, with the best sports streaming product in the market. Our new home at the White Rose Office Park will provide us with the space and facilities to continue to expand our global footprint, whilst investing in Leeds as one of the UK’s most influential media hubs.”
